Just waiting for peeps who don't understand how this game works. To load a full maps with it's own objects and textures, as well as scripts and the rest of it, requires this much RAM. Simple.
 
Yep, time to upgrade from 8GB. In 2008, 4GB was the norm. In 2012 it was 8GB. Now in 2016 and going into 2017, more games apparently will require 16GB. People like me still on DDR3 rigs will be forced to sell their current 2x4GB memory and upgrade to 2x8GB. There are no guarantees a second 2x4GB kit will play nice with the older original kit, and using all four DIMMs can be testy as well.

In any event it's nice to see at least something from the Halo series coming to the PC again. Last time I had anything of it on a PC was the original Halo demo that came on a PC Gamer demo CD from around 2000. Microsoft was stupid to abandon the PC gamers and just go all in for the Xbox variant of the game after buying out Bungie. Oh well...MS isn't exactly known for having a long track record of smart decisions.

It's would be misleading of Microsoft to state you need 16 GB if you actually only need 12 GB.

You can get dual-channel 12 GB by combining 4 GB and 2 GB modules, 2 each. It's not very practical these days due to low prices of 2 x 4 GB kits, but it's still possible. (Maybe you have 2 x 4 GB and have a spare 2 x 2 GB kit laying around. Or an older computer only had 2 x 2 GB to begin with and you upgraded with another 2 x 4 GB.)

1.st 12gb dosent mean mixing ram, there are tri channel kits w 12gb.
2. adding IDENTICAL modules (same model/timings/size) e.g. 2x4gb + 2x4gb, will work fine on almost all intel/amd platforms (at least 1155/am3+ and up).
im running 16gb (4x4gb) corsair V 2133/1.5v 11-11-11-30/2 without problems/bsods or errors in any memtest, so do others incl a friend with 32gb quad channel (4/4/4/4)...
